Flood Control International offers five types of flood barrier to ensure the right flood solution is provided:Temporary Flood Barriers, Flip-up Flood Barriers, Drop-Down Flood Barriers, Portable Cylinder Flood Barriers and Self-Closing Flood Barriers. With enhancement, these flood barriers also perform as Chemical Containment Barriers.
The flood barrier design varies from a simple modular 'stop-log' water barrier to automatic barriers that operate only when required. Flood protection heights up to 4m and unlimited lengths of flood wall systems are possible.
Automatic flood barriers can operate to self-raise with the rising flood water, or be push button operated so that the flood barrier can be operated in advance of floods with full peace of mind. They can also be manually operated as required.
Flood Control International provides CAD or PDF drawings of all installations ensuring they fit in with your requirements and that they integrate correctly with the whole scheme design where required.
Temporary Flood Barriers
Temporary flood barriers "Demountables" are engineered to provide similar levels of protection to permanent flood defences, but with the advantage of being fully removable when not required.
These flood barriers can be supplied for virtually any configuration and can be configured for flood protection heights of up to 4m.
Flip-up Flood Barriers
To provide unrestricted access to pedestrian and vehicle entrances, the automatic flip-up flood barrier is fully recessed in to the ground when not in use.
Activated by a push button, automatically triggered by sensors, or manually, this flood barrier rises up to flood defence heights of 2m as standard and up to lengths of 12m.
Drop-Down Flood Barriers
When not in use the drop-down flood barrier is unobtrusively located above the head of the opening, ready to be lowered at a moment’s notice.
Automatic sensors can operate the barrier with rising floodwaters, or push button operation keeping you in control, with manual override make this an efficient dependable flood defence.
Portable Cylinder Flood Barriers
Quick response flood defence to land areas threatened by severe flooding normally requires substantial resources in terms of sandbags, personnel and transport. Even with adequate time, such flood defences are often inefficient and time-consuming.
The Portable Cylinder Flood Barrier (PCFB) system is quickly erected using minimal personnel, transport and time and it works.
Self-Closing Flood Barriers
These innovative flood barriers use the hydrostatic pressure of the rising flood water to activate and raise the barrier into position.
No external power or intervention is required, making them ideal for unmanned locations, especially alongside rivers.
